    as a consultant and developer of software and courseware, including troubleshooting products with in
    house consultants and IBM's own consultants.

    Regular contact between NEON and their banking customers meant that a lot of Nathan's students were
    the banks themselves who understood the importance of Middleware but not how it affected their
    systems. Nathan trained the students in Middleware and how S.W.I.F.T. and FIX were handled by the
    Middleware applications. This allowed them to fully rationalise their in house projects completely.

    create, write and deliver the first worldwide on a new product. He completed this and received rave
    reviews. Within this Nathan developed the software required to enable complete compatibility with
    existing products and software suites.

    including assistance and consultation on customer sites for extended periods.

    week long course to consultants on NEON products and aid them in sales, pre-sales and consultancy.

    fast deployment of products to customers as well as aiding the consultants there in configuration
    and design problems.
